Arun Construction Services were contracted to make a visual and photographic condition survey of the Chartwell Court high-rise block of flats and then to complete the remedial repair work that had been identified.
Both the survey and remedial works were efficiently carried out by a three-man, IRATA trained industrial roped access team, who were able to ensure that there was minimal disruption for the residents.
The 3 mile stretch of cliffs that run between Brighton and Rottingdean in East Sussex are made up of chalk with isolated flints and flint bands. The chalk was laid down in a warm ocean over 85,000,000 years ago and is an important site for fossils. Following a series of cliff falls the Council undertook a programme of measures to ensure that the Undercliff Walk could be safely reopened. The cliffs are a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and all proposals had to have the approval of Natural England.
Arun Construction was entrusted with the task of clearing loose chalk from the netting that covers the cliff face, a project which was completed in just two weeks.
